The latest exhibit on view at the Robert Hillestad Gallery on East Campus of the University of Nebraska–Lincoln offers a glimpse into the future of contemporary fibers by presenting the very best work being made by students in the field today. Future Tense, the juried exhibition is on display in the Gallery through April 23.

The Gallery partnered with the Surface Design Association (SDA) to host the exhibition. SDA is a national organization for artists and designers working in fiber art, textiles, and printed media. Future Tense was juried by Natalie Baxter. Her work has been exhibited in galleries, museums, universities, and fairs internationally with recent shows at Denny Dimin Gallery in both New York and Hong Kong. Over 300 works were entered with a selection of 21 being shown in the gallery.

A virtual opening in partnership with SDA and Studio Art Quilt Associates will be held on Mar. 29 at 1 p.m. During the event, award winners will be announced and they will give a short description of their work. Register to Join the Opening
